Title: Building the House of your Dreams (without having a nightmare)
Length: Half day seminar

Building or remodeling a home is a complex undertaking, normally taking a year or two of your life and a significant amount of money. During this process the choices can seem endless. Itís easy to find yourself feeling out of control, logistically and financially, while at the same time wondering if youíre forgetting something essential. At the end of the process, the last thing you want is a bill that far exceeds your original budget and/or a laundry list of things you wish youíd added or changed. But more often than not, thatís exactly what happens.

To help attendees avoid this scenario, Tracy shows how an understanding of the building process, along with proper planning techniques, can have a profound affect on the bottom line.

  • improving indoor air quality,
  • green construction,

  • planning for Aging-in-place
